Washington, DC — The United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) International Union, the largest private sector union in the nation, released the following statement regarding Haggen’s Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing. “For years, hard-working men and women in grocery stores at Haggen's have shown their commitment to their job, their co-workers, the community, and this union family.
“As difficult as this bankruptcy process is, our message to Haggen is simple – we expect Haggen to do what is right by their hard-working employees and their families. Haggen's must never forget that these incredible men and women who do the work are the heart and soul of their stores.
“They are not numbers, but real people whose work and dedication should be honored. Looking ahead, our union family will do everything in our power to protect the livelihoods of every member who is and has been dedicated to meeting the needs of every Haggen's customer."
